Johnson Elementary School5

I absolutely love Johnson. I have two daughters, one who went from k-4 there and another that is currently in kindergarten. All the teachers and staff are great and so welcoming to parents. I enjoy volunteering regularly and it's so encouraged and appreciated by everyone at school. A lot of events/parties are parent organized so we get a big say in what's going on. The physical education dept is great and you couldn't ask for a more wonderful and creative art teacher.
Johnson is a wonderful school! The communication between parents and teachers is amazing. There are some very talented people running the PTO and they welcome anyone to participate. Room parents help to provide events for the classrooms. Overall, I could go on and on about the great things at Johnson. We had to move out of their zone, and I truly regret leaving this school.
JES is an awesome school! They have a great curriculum for the children's learning, awesome physical education program and great teachers! They also do a fabulous job keeping the school very clean, which is healthy for everyone!
Our home was purchased based on the school zoning. We didn't make a bid until we visited the school and were truly impressed. We've been at Johnson 4 years now with our oldest son, our oldest daughter started this past year. Both love it! The admin, teachers and staff are all amazing. A great plus is the ethnic diversity in the school. The Physical Education teachers and program are excellent. Parent involvement is encouraged and seems to continue to grow. Overall JES is a wonderful place to educate and watch your child grow.
My older daughter attended Johnson from end of 1st grade through 4th; my younger daughter began in kindergarten. Both loved it, loved it, loved it. There isn't a bad teacher in the school, the staff is very hands-on, but not in a controlling manner. Mrs. Hickerson is long overdue for a lifetime achievement award - you'd be hard pressed to find a better Kindergarten teacher ANYWHERE. I honestly can't praise the school enough.
My daughter is in kindergarten at this school and we both love it. Her teacher (Mrs. Hickerson) is the best kindergarten teacher I could have hoped for. She is very patient, yet firm with the children. My daughter was already a little advanced for her age when she's started and Mrs. Hickerson has pushed her to achieve even more. Communication is awesome. You can email or call the teacher and get an immediate response. Lots of free activities are offered in the MAC program: dance, taekwondo, photography...I highly recommend this school. Can't say enough good about it.
My two children are in their third year at Johnson Elementary and I have had nothing but positive experiences. Teachers are great at challenging the children to do their ablolute best. Great rapport between staff and parents. We love Johnson!
